The Launch !

Hi eveyone Flossie here, hope you are all having a great week! Sorry but I was not able to go an a beach clean this week because the weather was terrible!! So this week’s blog is very exciting because it is mostly going to be about the launch of Flossie And The Beach Cleaners Charity! Anyway lets get on with how this amazing night went!

When I got up in the morning I went to the hairdressers while my Mum dropped AAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL the goodie bags off to the yacht club! d548bd49-0dfe-408a-98ac-5363177e214c

After that I came home and helped my Mum and Dad fill a bunch of black olive jars with seaweed that had tiny bits of plastic attached all through it, pretty much everything that we see all the time on a beach clean and is impossible to clean up, so my Mum decided it would be good for people to see what is on their doorstep of where they live and put a jar  on every table! then we set off to the yacht club to make sure that everything was organised including our new giant banner!img_1100 When we arrived I saw my photo booth shaped like a bottle made from plastic bottles in the sea! I was so so happy to see that the lovely Pablo who works at the  yacht club was able to make it stand!img_1099At home we relaxed for a while then my Mum went out to get her nails done which I was a bit confused by and my Dad put on a movie for us to whach [ To be honest I thought it was depressing !!!!!!!!!!!]  Then my Mum’s friend came and gave my Mum the top of her wedding dresse and she wore the bottom half of it, Where I on the other hand just wore something from my Mums wardrobe !! The good news is no-one bought anything so we are staying as sustainable as possible!!img_1105When we arrived the cycling karaoke was being set up! Then people instantly started to arrive! I was so glad to see my friend Anna, we hung out and had some pictures taken of us! Onece everyone was seated we decided to make the speeches! img_1148My Mum made an amazing speech and then I made more of a funny one! Then we all waited patiently for our food even if we wanted to scream and shout WHERE IS MY SUPPER!!!!!! Whilst waiting my friend and I decided to pretend we came from a different time period and wore napkins on our heads!img_1107After supper we moved on to the auction which was a HUGE success one of the prizes was to be the next character in the weekly story I write in my my blog , it was AMAZING the bidding went up to 800 euro I was shocked so I made another speech saying thank you for bidding for my prize and my Mum also made one but about all of the prizes [even if my prize was the best!] 

Now it was time to do cycling karaoke! Anna and I were first up and together we sang ‘Its Oh So Quiet ‘ by Bjork It was the first song we sang together to win the Sea Scouts talent show so we still sing it for good luck! It was a bit tricky to get four people to cycle but we got them in the end, and we were fabulous!!!!!

Then my Dad did it and Anna and I cycled! It was so tiring! Sadly Anna had to go home  and I was left to sing with someone else and pedal without her, but I got over it! and my Mum and her friend were great.24a12a0e-9117-436c-920f-6a8559f1b4aa4b524552-9b72-4484-9a5b-088b61af358fimg_1116We had the giant cool fish out side as well which I think looks better in my kitchen, I mean my cats have begun to really love it!img_1152After the cycling kareoke the DJ arrived and played loads of songs which some I head of and some I have never heard of before but everyone else loved them which was the whole point!708d823b-7d2c-4587-8c4f-056b15f52c05One or our friend’s Jody danced so much that he was completely drenched in sweat that when I touched his back to say congratulations my hand was soaking wet with his wet sweat! It was such a fun night!

On Thursday my Mum took me out of school because I was going to have a interview on the BBC so I was very, very, very excited. It was a bit cold on the beach but anything for the BBC! The interview was great but it was a bit hard because just before they were going to interview a bunch of tourists came onto the beach but they were gone before the BBC called into do a live SKPYPE on the beach…phew!

This weeks story is called ‘The Jellyfish That Wasn’t’

Once upon a time there lived a girl named Julie, Julie had L.E.T.P [Loving Every Thing Problem] which meant if she had a candyfloss she would name it and would become its friend, one day Julie went to the shops to buy flowers they came wrapped in a plastic bag she took the flowers out of the plastic bag but as she did she fell insatly in love with the bag! So from that day forward she brought it everywhere and she named it Baggy! One day she brought Baggy down to the beach, But then a family asked Julie 

Could you take a picture of us please

Julie said yes but when they handed her the phone she let go of Baggie and since it was a windy day Baggie was flown out very far away! As Baggie flew away both the familly and Julie started to sceam NNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOO but the family were sad because Julie dropped their phone. Poor Baggie was thrown side to side until Baggie landed in the sea!!

Then a thing that looked just like Baggie said 

Are you ok, and how did you do that?

Baggie replied

I am fine thanks and do what?

This stange thing replied

Fly how did you fly?

Baggie responded 

I don’t know. What are you and who are you?

The thing replied

You poor thing you must have forgotton wat we are , we are Jellyfish and I am Sam the smartist jellyfish of them all [I know what 2+2 is it’s 7] Now who are you?!

Baggie replied

I am Baggie!

So Sam agreed to show Baggie around and introduced Baggie to loads of his jelyfish friend but what Baggie didn’t know was that everyone thought he was a jellyfish as well! Baggie felt really at home but he still really missed Julie and knew he wanted to go back to her.

Later that morning all the jellyfish set off to do a bit of  stinging, they were very confused  why Baggie wasn’t stinging anyone!  Baggie realised that he wasn’t the same as the jellyfish so the next day he got up and went up to the surface where he was blown all the way back to land and from there he made his way to Julies house but when he arrived he saw that Julie had a paper recyclable bag now!!! Pour Baggie was very sad until he realised… 

meh I never realy liked her I am just going to go back into the sea where I belong!

But on his way to the sea a man saw him and put him in the bin!


This weeks video is really cool, because you are going to see a fish with a see though head that lives 2000 metres below the sea!!!


The End
